Thailand is among the top-ranked part producers suppling a large quantity of various types of components to the world. The country’s export index and domestic production base volume surpass most of the neighbor countries due to several advantages, be it location (Thailand is the center of the ASEAN region), large domestic market, strong supply chain, and the reinforcement of government’s investment promotion policy.  In global supply chains, Thailand’s supporting industry ranks 2nd in HDD export, 7th in computer devices export, and 6th largest commercial vehicle producer.* Japanese automakers, whose productions and sales dominate over 75% of the market, have positioned Thailand as the production base of 1-tonne pick-ups and eco-cars for exports. In addition, Chinese and European manufacturers have shown increasing interests in producing the large cars, as well as luxury vehicles in Thailand.**
